Thinking Like A Mountain

Fact: I took 2 classes on Aldo Leopold when a junior and a senior in college. One class was on leopolds writings one was a graduate seminar on the “land ethic” called, Thinking Like A Mountain.

Well last evening at the Musesum of the Rockies some of my favorite Bozeman Based Conservation groups sponsored a new documentary on Aldo Leopold called, Green Fire, refering to when Leopold shot a wolf and saw in the dying wolves eyes the seeds of his epic idea for a land ethic.

This is a central tenant of conservation that requires all of “the cogs of conservation” to be used to protect the land that supports the focus of what is to be conserved.

The film was about Leopold’s evolution of a Land Ethic in his thinking and about Aldo Leopold the man…I give the documentary a big thumbs up and I think this film should be seen by all.
